Yesterday, I was completely unable to concentrate. Really...I did nothing productive at all. I couldn't handle the anticipation. I consumed lots of unneeded calories and laid on the couch with Lola letting Bravo keep my mind semi distracted.
I decided for good luck I would paint my nails in OPI Hopelessly in Love. It's the same color I wore the night Michael proposed and the day we got married. And since the nails were pink I decided I'd throw on a blue shirt, you know, to keep both sides represented.
I was miserable by the time they called me back to the ultrasound room. And the lady tech was actually in shock at how full my bladder was...thankfully she took some quick shots and let me run to the bathroom. She laughed saying no one ever follows the rules....well....I do.
Finally the moment we were waiting for had arrived. She flipped the screen to where Michael and I could see and BAM....boy parts. Right there in my face. My mother's intuition was completely wrong. Nothing pink in our near future. Tonka trucks and BB guns here we come!
It took the rest of the night for it to actually set in...we are having a little boy and I can't wait! Little boys are supposed to love their mama's and hey let's face it, they are so much less expensive!
Now it is time for me to go into full fledged baby mode. Watch out!
